We wanted a comfortable home on the sea that would allow us to enjoy the best of Connemara. We came to Teach Greine to celebrate our 20th Anniversary, and hoped for a private house that would reconnect us to the wild beauty of Western Ireland that we'd fallen in love with 20 years ago on our honeymoon. We could not have anticipated quite how magical our time at Teach Greine would be. Eileen was a gracious hostess, welcoming us with roses and a card for our anniversary, food staples, and an excellent orientation to the house and the region. The house had everything we needed. It was warm and cozy even on the windiest of days. The fireplace added charm, and the views of the sea and the 12 Bens from the picture windows were nothing short of spectacular. The ever changing sky made each look out the windows unique. We loved walking the gorgeous property, abundant with wildflowers and lovely grasses. We spotted sea otters, seals, and plenty of bird life. It was easy for us to make day trips all over the region including Clifden, Roundstone, Leenane, Kylemore Abbey, Oughterard, Ballynihinch, Inishbofin, Omey Island, Dog's Bay, Connemara National Park, Galway City, and more. Restorative beauty around every corner. We were even able to make it up to Ballycastle and Westport in Co. Mayo. We looked forward to cooking meals in Teach Greine's perfectly planned kitchen, and took advantage of many great bars and pubs in the area as well. It was very hard for us to leave Teach Greine. We hope to be back again soon.
